The Richest WWE Divas Rating
Which current divas take a spot on the list? Which former diva came out at the top? The answer may surprise you…
The use of women in the WWE has been controversial at times, with some people questionning if they are valuable to the wrestling business at all. These ladies have shown that whether your greatest achievement comes in wrestling or not, it can undoubtedly be used as a platform to gain some form of fame. Some of these women accomplished more in the ring than others, but the mainstream crossover has proven to be possible.
Sometimes divas have been accused of merely joining the WWE to move on to mainstream success. But the shelf life of divas is usually short in WWE. Think about this for a second. Trish Stratus is thought to be the best diva of all time, yet her career lasted just six years. Even the most successful divas don’t get much time on top. A lot of the women on this list have done a good job setting themselves up for life once their wrestling careers inevitably ended, often at an age well under 35.
Stephanie McMahon is the most powerful woman in the business, and its most valuable woman with a net-worth of $25 million, but she won’t be included on this list because her salary has come exclusively from her work behind-the-scenes in the WWE.
#10 Sable (Rena Lesnar)- Net Worth: 1.5 Million
Sable was part of the wave of women that turned female wrestlers into sex symbols and shocked many in the process. Rena Marlette is currently married to Brock Lesnar, who is worth $15 million himself and has achieved fame beyond the wrestling business. Wrestling fans will always remember Sable exposing herself, with nothing more than black handprints on her breasts during the WWE’s edgy and controversial Attitude Era.
Her catchphrase included “this is for all the women who want to be me, and for the men who come to see me.” Sable followed that up with a grind. Lewd, yes. Gratuitous, yes. But it resonated with the male demographic quite well, as much as that may surprise you.
Sable went on to pose in Playboy in April 1999. The magazine was one of the highest-selling of all time. She posed for the magazine again in September of that year, following her departure from the WWE, and again in 2004 alongside Torrie Wilson during her second run in the WWE.
Marlette is now living comfortably outside of the pro wrestling world, raising her two sons with Lesnar, as well as her stepdaughter (Lesnar’s daughter from a previous relationship). At 46 years old, she’s enjoying life and her wrestling career is far behind her.
